Retro Era Poppy Flower Ruby & Diamond Earrings in 14k Rose Gold

An impressive pair of Retro-era ear-clips, modeled in 14k rose gold to resemble a couple of voluptuous poppy flowers. These large flowers hold a bevy of natural, pave-set rubies in their spherical their centers, and ten of their long anthers holds a small white diamond in its four prongs. These are highly-sculptural, beautifully-made and poetic— poppy flowers are associated with the Greek goddess Demeter, and in this context they symbolize abundance, renewal, and life which overcomes death. Marked 14k. We can add posts to these, for pierced ears, if desired— that alteration is complimentary.
